Pinewood Lodge--Day Two--Unite us Lord!

Tuesday, March 31, 7:50 a.m.

Good morning, God! I slept well, for a good nine hours. It feels nice. Tom’s still sleeping and will probably sleep till noon so I have a nice chunk of time to spend alone with you.

Thank you for the beauty of this place and for the simplicity of living here. There are no demands on time, we can do what we want and don’t even have to clean. I didn’t need a nap yesterday, either. I wanted one, I was so tired, but I made it through. I need to find a way to make it through today’s tired hours. Being aware that I am tired in the late afternoon will help me to push through that tiredness so I can go to bed at a decent hour and get a good, solid sleep at night.

Please knit Tom and I together, closer and closer. Take down the barriers we’ve built between us, God, and unite us as one. May our marriage become a song of praise to you for all who know us. May we both draw closer to you as well, God. I want to be in tune with both you and Tom and Tom with me and you. Heal each of us inside, please. Heal us and make us whole—as individuals and as a couple. Nothing is impossible for you, God, and I am depending on you for this. So be it.
